    rick_hershey:
    concept: The Octeopathiticus Maximus Poisonator is a deadly marine creature that can live in both deep and shallow waters. It is a dangerous carnivore that must constantly feed in order to maintain its high matabolism. The unique feature of this creature is that it uses a mild sedative in order to paralyze smaller "cute" creatures to use as a type of bait for larger animals. This form of "fishing" is very affective and has proven to continue working through out the centuries.

    LegacyPunk:
    concept: The striped shade slug is about 4 feet long and usually resides under the shade of trees. It waits for its prey, usually squirrels and small mamals, untill they are close enough for it to strike. It lashes out and either entraps or impales its prey with its long hidded teeth. It then, like some starfish, projects its stomach (tounge) onto its prey and starts digesting it right on the spot, from the outside in, whether its dead or not. It was most recently discovered by an elementary school teacher after noticing that half her class were missing. Over the years the slug has figured out that it can catch unsuspecting children and has developed its cute camoflage and making a purring sound when a child is close. Some of them are known leapers and should generally be avoided.

    vaughany_boy:
    concept: Buggin Snuzzle
    The Snuzzles once were are civilised species, tribal in nature, living in large family groups. They mated for life and grew close to those around them. Until a sudden evolutionary jump tore the small animals apart. Upon reaching adolescence, the Snuzzles began to secrete a poisonous, acidic substance from their pores. These cursed Snuzzles, called Buggins by their peers became outcasts. Sent to live outside the village, never to return, for fear that they might spread their condition and injur many others. The Buggin Snuzzles however, continued to be born and to accidentally kill off their normal friends until the culture was destroyed. Now the only Snuzzles that remain are the Buggin Snuzzles. The only ones imune to their toxic sweat, they roam the forests and jungles, looking for people to befriend. Emotionally scarred from their being outcasts, they want nothing more than someone to love them and are very freindly. However, whenever a Buggin meets a creature to be friends with, any contact horribly burns them and often the poison kills even the largest of creatures if it enters the bloodstream. As such these animals are doomed to wander in dispair, making and accidentally killing friend after friend after friend.

    concept: Decroded Shmegmite: Bigger than a breadbox, extremely venomous, and cute as a button. The DS is 2nd in deadliness only to its far superior cousin the Pap Shmericus Palamite.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Prehistoric:
    concept: The Meeplers are the bastard children of an old local legend called "The Wheedle on the Needle". Usually spotted around the Belltown area, close to their ancestral home and object of worship, The Space Needle. During the week they can be seen sleeping in alleyways and under dumpsters, but citizens of New Seattle are warned to keep a watchful eye on the weekends. Starting friday mornings, the Meeplers travel in packs, robbing the unwary for drug and beer money to fuel their "Friday Night Fur Parties", which usually end sometime on sunday and result in the injury or death of at least 25% of the partygoers. Their reproductive cycle is very fast, and needs to be, to replenish their numbers lost in their crazy weekend binges. Few people have witnessed these parties, but those who have are left with troubling nightmares of voilently flying fur that persist for several weeks.

    Uziel:
    concept: Seadragonus Paralymfis
    This little creature of joy is my pet bubbles. He has a huge system of tubes and tanks to his disposal to swim to all corners of my laboratory. Unfortunatly direct contact with him is impossible. When touched this little creature can drain all your life-energy leaving you paralized for life or dead. How he does that? I don't know; I don't want to use him in experiments,test of any kind to find out. He eats seaweed and other vegetarian sweets that i give him. He likes to play and doing tricks all day.

    concept: Manchestershire Melancholy Mongoose
    "Wee bugger's the most insidious blighter ever set foot onnis isle.."~Crabtriggin Mckugglebuckins, editor of "Behind Plexiglass Magazine"
    "Manchestershire Melancholy Mongoose?!?!?!...ehh?? where...Yeeh gods!..where?!!..is it on me man??? GET IT OFF!"~Prunella Derriwinkles, contributing zoologist to "Cornered and Caged Chronicle"
    The misery mongoose as it is commonly known was first discovered by a lowly bobby who after sealing off the fifth suicide within a half a block area spied the mongoose carrying it's litter one by one through the pouring rain to the next flat. After many grisly experiments baiting the animal...one was finally procured. Sadly, the entire team investigating the creature took too few precautions and ultimately succumbed to the Mongoose's natural ablities taking their own lives one more gruesome than the next. Eventually it was found that the mongoose produces a pheromone that is odorless to the human olfactory nerve, however, has a potently depressive effect on human brain chemistry. It was further found that the mongoose passes itself as a loving and more than jovial pet. It's curious nature and impish ways deem it a cute and cuddly friend among it's fanciers. However, at the climax of the female's pregnancy the pheromone is released gradually culminating to it's height mere hours before the birth of it's kits. The unsuspecting victim feels the psychotic urges come on gradually and in the end cannot resist them. After the act, the female dips her teats in wading pools of blood where a two way organic valve siphons the liquid in so that the first taste in the world her kits will have will be of their prey.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    MIKECORRIERO:
    concept: The powers of this creature lay within its eyes. The Clown Faced Pookachu lures unsuspecting victims with a potent pheromone which it produces through its mouth. The deadly toxin subdues the victim giving them a short “high” and works as a sedative. Once the victim has been relaxed, the Pookachu works her magic. She stares deep within the victims soul with her lustrous eyes as Soothing mellow songs are hummed. As though it would seem it has only been minutes, she has sucked years from your life, draining every bit of youth and health that you posses, to provide her with ever lasting life.

    concept: the deadly night squirt
    Noxious secretions from the tiny but deadly urban nightsquirt, renders its victims helpless and blind, allowing the nightsquirt packs ,to feed at will,an excruitating death every time.

    salaryman:
    concept: Lowland Midget Aye-Aye (edible)
    The Lowland Midget Aye-Aye (edible) (fig. A) is a rare delicacy indeed.
    The creature's taste has been described as being somewhere between dog food and the very manna of heaven, though an entry by Pliny, records: "for verily it tastes like chicken!" (Historia Naturalis)
    The piquant of the flesh is matched only by the funk of it's pelt (fig. B), which when washed and tanned is turned inside out and employed as toe mittens by the barnacle crofters on the Lowland veldt.
    A word of warning though, the Lowland midget Aye-Aye must be gutted correctly (indeed Aye-Aye chefs are trained for 7 years before they can even touch a real specimen, and only then with the aid of protective trousers). The Aye-aye's Mong Bladder (fig. C) secretes a substance so dangerous it has been known to peel bark from trees at the mark of 50 yards.
    Badly prepared Aye-Aye dishes result in the death of at least the consumer, his waiter, the chef and quite obviously the Aye-Aye.
    On a lighter note, the bladder secretions can be boiled down and used as a cure for Trench Mouth and Sticky Finger in infants.

    Matt Dixon:
    concept: The Nooni
    This tiny nugget of strawberry-flavoured, squidgy huggability is also known as 'The Messenger of Death' across countless worlds that have felt her limitless evil. Quite how the little creature is able to crush civilisations, boil oceans and extinguish stars remains a mystery as all who witness her arrival are doomed to a painful end. Legend suggests it has something to do with that dimple in her belly...aaaaAAAA-AAARGHTTHHppt.

    leckronium:
    concept: The Northern Tri-tailed Elooch
    In the year 2150 mankind has almost perfected genetic engineering. The Northern Tri-tailed Elooch was engineered to be the perfect house pet. With the long ears, fluffy fur coat, three bushy tails, and a pair of innocent eyes, the elooch would bring joy to anyones heart on a cold winter night.
    What engineers never planned on was the elooch killing thousands of pet owners every winter. The electric charge that builds up from the elooch and it's long fur coat is enough to instantly kill anyone who approaches it looking for someone to snuggle with. Since these outbreaks began the government has placed strict regulations on owning an elooch. However, leave it to the engineers to turn a catastrophic situation into a resourceful one. Engineers have developed a way of using the pet's power producing abilities by developing a wheel that the overly energetic elooch can run in. This carpeted wheel, much like a hamster's wheel, collects the static charge and redirects it throughout the home powering lights and other electrical appliances. This efficiency has infuriated the power companies who have since taken over the breeding rights of the elooch. The government has also jumped in creating the elooch tax as well. But in the end, the elooch survives and everyone is again able to enjoy the love and companionship of the perfectly engineered house pet.

    Bretton:
    concept: The Little White Whale is as cute as it is hungry. Only as big as a regular freshwater bass this is the smallest whale currently discovered. With an eyeball that makes up about a fourth of it's total length it is quite an adorable little whale. However it is as hungry as it is cute and would not hesitate to eat anyone ignorant enough to try and pet it.

    Stokes:
    concept: The BlibberBite
    Since the early 80's scientists have been keeping a close eye on the elusive BlibberBites. BlibberBites usually try and inhabit an attractive human host in hopes that they will be able to lure other humans closer so that the can feast on them. It has also been noted that BlibberBites have very bad taste when it comes to finding an attractive host. This shortcoming often times ruins their whole strategy. Because of this there have been fewer and fewer BlibberBite sightings as of late.

    Fozzybar:
    concept: Plutoniumis Boomus
    Secret agencies of many many countries tried to abuse the enormously dangerous power of this little creature...it looks very harmless and cute, but inside of this freak of nature there is one of the biggest threads for life at all...
    The body is highly radioactive and absolutely sensitive, that's why it's protected by a surrounding carapace...one incautious move and the creature explodes in a nuclear blast...that's why no military power ever succeeded to use the power of this creature...they now live on a secret island somewhere in the pacific, insulated by the US-Army, rumors are afloat that the government still tries to abuse the creature for military purposes, but experts assure that this would be suicide and there is nothing true about that...
    However it's strange, that this creature itself is absolutely peacable and anxious to live in harmony with its environment...unfortunately nearly every creature getting in contact with the Plutoniumis is dying after a short period...
    cute but deadly...

    strych9ine:
    concept: The Becoming
    With the voice like a lullaby and the face of an angel, you'd could hardly believe on description alone that this rare abomination has ended every life that has had the unfortunate luck to happen upon it. The Becoming is a hideous creature, for sure, but you would never know it in it's presence. From it's sickly mass of tentacles and mangled flesh it produces a face and voice so entrancing that it's victim is emersed in a vision of beauty unlike no other it's seen before. Once the song begins, the face of an angel is the last thing the victim will see. Which is good, because the next three hours that it takes for The Becoming to slowly rend and digest him is a hideous sight.
    And it just happens to shit Easter Eggs, something that would have been helpful for me to know last week.

    GomenNasai:
    concept: The common furry woodlouse habitat covers almost 50% of our planet, with 2,623 subspecies like the legendary hraldic tiger and the edible big pink. It measures 1.5 to 2 ft. from end to end.
    The woodlouse feeding habit predates on our hughug instinct, by purring and looking at us reproachfully with its wet eyes. Even knowing that it is lethal, once one look into its eyes, the hughug response takes place, and the victim take it on its breast. The woodlouse then use its claws to maintain its prey, and dig its teeth in the victim's breast, without once loosing its cute expression, and start feeding. The victim dies about one hour after the first look, emptied of its fluids.

    JeffZNY:
    concept: The Tooth-tail Tamarin represents a bizarre evolutionary tangent. The primate's skull lacks a jaw and the creature instead ingests food through a mouth located in its tail. Do not be fooled by the Tooth-tail's giant adorable eyes; it is a vicious predator and a master of deception, luring its prety with its cute and cudly appearance before striking out with its fanged jaws.

    concept: Through out time Horses have been used as transportation. Well Evolution has benefited a speacial breed, the Virefist pony. With a fierce temper and meat filled diet this creature is a force not to be tested. "Hey mom I wanna ride the little pink pony"... yea that's what was said right before the Virefist pony bit off her little head....

    BlkCelebration:
    concept: Ka-ninoh
    Not necessarily cute by earth standards, the Ka-ninoh originates from the dark planet and is the pet of choice for young dark world inhabitants (also known as "darklings").
    This little fellow uses the light atop its head to light the darklings' path as they search for eggs in their anual "egg hunt."
    While they appear harmless, their vicious nature comes out when their owners are threatened by the Gü-Evoh (COW #008 ). Many darklings survive the egg hunt with the help of their trusty and deadly Ka-ninohs.

    Sinix:
    concept: The Japanese man-eating hexapus. A curious looking beach dwelling creature, the japanese hexapus is known to immitate the look of an innocent child's doll. But it is far from innocent, as any unknowing child who gets to close will quickly find out as they are snatched by one of the creature's 6 tentacles and quickly pulled into it's trapdoor mouth. The small human victims are usually still alive as they are slowly dissolved in the creature's round and decoy-like stomach. A most agonizing death. It's estimated over 2,000 children die each year to these strange and rare creatures.
    (notice the little hand prodding at the inside of the decoy eye, bwahaha)

    Shamagim:
    concept: Bladewing cat
    This medium sized feline lives in extremely cold emviroments, for that reason he must eat around 6 to 7 ponds of meat and blubber every day. His digestive system burns calorys rapidly to keep the body warm enought, witout keeping any body fat.
    He is one of the moust succesfull predators in the ridge, capable to even hunt the biggest prays, and defend himself from other predators 3 times bigger than himself. This is because he haves one extra set of lims, in wish theres one falange that became extremly hard and edgy, like a blade.....but, this "blade" rotational capabilitys is limited to a 120º swing abobe his head starting from the back, so he doest use it to strike directly ( unless he start rolling toward his enemy), instead he jumps to his pray´s neck, and stabs him with his blades from the bottom, to pierce the main veins while he uses his teeths to cut trought the spine.....

    0kelvin:
    concept: Majestic Foxbear
    The Majestic Foxbear is about the size of the average housecat and is a close cousin to both both bears and dogs. When the Foxbear was first discovered the first thing biologists noted was its extremely fire retardant hide. Scientists struggled to figure out why it would develop such an odd characteristic, until one day Dr. Amos Griftenson, noted biologist and asshole, made a particularly nasty comment towards the creature. The scientists were amazed to see the creature's feelings seemed to be hurt. It began to cry and the pieces of the puzzle quickly came together. The Foxbear's tears consisted largely of ethylene glycol dinitrate, a substance over 160 times as volatile as nitroglycerin. The resulting explosion wiped out over 2 and half million dollars in equipment, roughly 40 other rare species housed in the same lab and the entire team of scientists. The Majestic Foxbear was relatively unharmed.

    concept: The adorable Gas Mite or is it Might!?
    Enter the Gas Mite. A creature so adorably cute and yet unequivocably deadly. Allow me a chance to explain: this furry fiend stands approximately 1 foot in height and 2 feet in length with lush long hair, a button tail, a cute as a button heart-shaped nose, and what appear to be pleading puppy-dog eyes, but don't let this fool you. That tail - well, that's its noise maker - when it shakes a whimper sound comes from it to draw prey closer. And those eyes are just surface markings evolved out of necessity to further lure its prey. As the prey stoops down to pet this cuddly wuddly creature, the Gas Mite reaches upward as if needing your love, but it wants so much more. That cute, heart-shaped nose is really a tube opening that expels a silent but deadly gas reaching upwards of 6 feet. This gas is a serious olfactory assault rendering the victim with no motor capability thereby falling to the ground, helpless. The Gas Mite is then able to slither on top of the immobile victim and consume alive. Guess it should be called a Gas Might -because dey be cute but DAMN dey be deadly stinkee!

    Negrotuerto:
    concept: The earth-grasshopper is one of the worst predators in the deserts of south america. Most of them come from eggs produced by the adult female every eight years. Only two eggs from almost forty five live for bring new eart-grasshopper to Chaco, a small province in Argentina. Since water is so scarce, most desert animals get their water from others animals (their food) they eat, but not the earth-grasshopper; this kind of creature obtain its water provision from human childs due their fragile structure and lack of resistance.
    The earth-grasshopper has a "tricky ending" tail wich uses for haunting purpose hidding the rest of his body in dark structures such as underground galleries. This creature can wait for its prey even for three days without moving at all.
    The earth-grasshopper paralize its prey with a scary scream coming from the sweet little creature atached on his tail. The scare is so strong that paralize the entire muscles of its prey for about seven hours while the earth-grasshopper slowly eliminate the skin of its paralized prey until it reaches the muscles.
    This creature has almost eliminated the young chaco poblation leaving abandoned old mens and womens.

    young_paddy1:
    concept: with most of it's body underground the giant angler snail choose a plot usually close to small burrowing animals, not so it can eat the little creatures themselves but rather their predators, using it's fair approximation of the local wildlife it sets up shop and waits for it's prey.

    Gloklund:
    concept: The Gren Shite Wodum
    The Gren Shite Wodum is an amazing mutation of a species of dung eating wodum. This cuddly little creature will feast on the waste of nearly any creature that defecates. Gorging itself on the toxic turds, the cute and loveable wodum becomes so lethal and deadly from ingesting the foul feces, no one in their right mind would bother touching it. Less seals their fate.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sapphire:
    concept: The Common Kiffit
    Kiffits have long since been domesticated, kept as a popular pet for apartments and households with young children. The fur of the domestic version is often much brighter and more varied in terms of color and pattern than its wilder cousins. Otherwise harmless, the kiffits, wild or domestic, have an instinctive attraction to bright lights, and will heedlessly dart into the path of an oncoming vehicle, especially at night when they are most active (or have gotten loose from their homes). Drivers are frequently thrown into devastating accidents because of trying to dodge these sweet little critters who are just stupid enough to throw themselves right in the way. Frequently aired on TV are ads warning the public to simply run over a kiffit if it does this, but this is easier said than done when you see the little guy in your headlights.
    Kiffits, thousands of years ago, had eight, fully functional legs. As they have evolved throughout the centuries, however, the back six have shriveled and become only small, vestigial remnants. Breeders have long since tried to fully reduce the leglets, and sometimes in show animals, these are simply cut off. Its feelers and large eyes make it an exeptional hunter in the dark.

    lukavi:
    concept: Bok-bok
    The Bok-bok Bird may look fuzzy and sweet but it can turn into a psychotic killer if you ruffle its feathers the wrong way. Like its cousin, the Bakulaw Bird, the Bok-bok is very anti-social and just wants to be left alone. But silly humans fall for pretty colors quite easily and find themselves wanting to cuddle the feathered spitfire. Add to that the rare flower that only grows on top of its fungi-encrusted scalp, and it becomes completely irresistable. Many have tried to get up-close and personal with the Bok-bok only to be shredded to bits by its 4-foot long bony claws.

    al-x:
    concept: The Stinky Baby Eater
    This critter lives in the jungle. It feeds on diffrent baby animals, but prefer the human child. It's cute and colorful just to attract children and scare off grown ups. When it has lured a child close to it, it will release a deadly gas. The gas is released from the rectum of the critter. The child will die instantly and the critter will carry the deadchild to it's nest and feed off of it for several weeks.

    Craig Houghton:
    concept: The Over-ended Crooner from the Plane of Limbo
    In the everchanging soup of Limbo there are few pockets of good hard earth. But, where there are, you might find the loveable Over-ended Crooner. Carrying for miles, many travelers have followed the deep, sweet sound of these crooners to a safe chunk of rock amongst the chaos of Limbo. Unfortunately, many travellers mistake the melodic business-end for an affectionate muzzle. The creatures are quick to cuddle, and they mean well, but sadly their deadly back end breath is too much for even the sturdiest of souls.

    xia:
    concept: Georgio Belefonte
    This poor little fella is a by-product of early Viagra animal testing. After being nutered at birth scientists were curious if their wonder drug would be able to re invigorate this once flaccid excuse for a pet. The experiment worked wonders on the little guy’s sex charm and Georgio was back in business. Some say he once dry humped 2,354 legs in a single month. Sadly though, after years of continuos dry humping he rubbed off his reproductive organs. Now the frustrated Georgio has a bad habit of eating his legs owner after he’s finished.
    As experiment goes on, they know how dangerous Georgio itself can be, but they need more Georgios because of financial reason (Just like any bad Sci-fi movie)...long story short. A horrifying incedent worse than anyone's nightmare occured during the orgie trial of six Georgios (so-called "SixOrgieGe"). Frustration during their orgie session, they mutate into one gigantic man-eater Georgio Belefonte.

    Aberrant:
    concept: The gliding skullfucker is found in heavily forested areas of asia. The sexes of the species are very different, the male is pictured and has a large penis made mostly of bone and cartilage as well as a flap of skin connecting arm to leg which allows it to glide short distances. The female is larger, fatter, with longer hair and strange genitals also made mostly of bone. When the two mate the male's member is sharpened to a razor edge between two rough spines in the female. Not having much nerve endings doesn't make for enjoyable sex, so females are mostly disinterested. The males however have a very high sex drive and spring time confusion can lead to fatalities in humans with particular hair styles.

    concept: The honor of naming a new species traditionally falls on its founder and in this case it was neo-xeno-naturalist Major Tarquin "Stubby" Gustavus after his surprise discovery of the Dun Pet Th'fuckin' Bunnay, while setting up camp on Festus IV. A trapper, the creature waits for unsuspecting predators to mark an apparently easy meal, then snaps it's four foot diameter talons into the startled foe and procedes to consume it. The internal organs rest in a conical shell which lay in a shallow hole, allowing the talons to rest hidden in whatever grasses are around.

    ..voted for Negrotuerto

    While he's not the only one using the cute-lure approach, this one has believability. I can accept that thing as an actual creature making a real living off of suckers done in by that silly smile on the bait.

    The illustration makes the concept _very_ clear and it's damn professional looking.

    Great work everyone!

    -Craig

    It was a tie between xia and Negrotuerto.. but my vote goes to Negrotuerto, since i prefer his rendering, and his creatures "cute" side was the cutest.

    Nice work everyone!

    I voted Negrotuerto, it's obvious alot of thought and process went into this. It nails the theme and manages to be completely kick-ass. It was incredibly hard to come up w/ a creature that fit the "cute" bill that wasn't sickening sweet and cartoony, because those are some of the easiest ways to make something cute. I drove myself crazy trying to find that happy-medium and Negrotuerto pulled it off.

    I also love the 2 expressions on the cute bit's face

    i voted for negrotuerto.

    a very cool illustration and a great concept.

    i also liked fozzy's and redehlert's, but they didn't grab me as much as the earth grasshopper (no pun intended).

    i really liked salaryman's and prometheus', but the deadly side of them just didn't come through in the pictures. for me, i want to see "cute" and "deadly", rather than "cute" in the picture, and "deadly" in the description.

    Hey dog. . . . did you see the size of that chicken?!

    Geez....tough call folks. So many that I like - why can't I vote 10 times?!?
    Hemming and hawing aside, I warminlgy embraced Matt Dixon's concept. It's cute and the story gives me the deadly. Rendering is simple and in my humble opinion - just the right amount. Bravo Matt, you slay!
    Other entries that made it into my final grouping include:
    Fozzybar - damn cute face there, mate! Good story too - enjoyed the posture, lighting and the ladybug on the finger. Constantly kickin' A!
    Sinix - that's one sweet concept/layout/copy you have there! So simple, much like Matt's, but darker and visually sinister. You were my runner up - what would have won your's over for me would be some juicy highlights that dolls tend to have.
    Negrotuerto - hot damn! That's a spicy meat-a-ball you got there. Great creature and concept copy. Layout was pleasing and your rendering was fab - definitely impressed with pretty much everything there.
    Aberrant - I thought this was one cute critter and the story line made me laugh. Would've been cool to see that razor sharp boner (literally) and some color shifts in the fur due to how the light was hitting it, but the anatomy seems perfectly legitimate in my book!

    A big congrats to everyone who completed a concept - I think this is the biggest turnout I've been a part of thus far, and it seems that the individuals who have been consistent with these COW patties are getting better and better with their poop. Kick butt!
    Cheers!

    I had to vote for Negrotuerto this time, the rendering and concept just had me at first view. Nice entry dude!

    Mista Dixon, you've proved your skill yet again... your use of color blows me away everytime. JoBeSu, Salaryman, MIKECORRIERO, Stokes, Fozzybar, Prom, and many more of you talented bastards deserve some commendation too. Great entries guys, let's keep this huge momentum going on these COWs. Let me get a hoo hah two times Tuesday...

    Great job everyone!

    It was tough to decided 'cuz everyone's entry just got better and better.
    It was a tide between Jobesu and Negrotuerto...in my head.

    My vote went to Negrotuerto (the mysterious man)
    Kick@$$ work man! Woot.

    BTW: You should show us your WIP (Step by Step), I'd love to know your process. It will be a great education for me and everyone.
